37 years I’m together with my best friend Rob and I have never regretted it. Like everyone else, we have ups and downs but always we meet again. Never there is any blame, we trust each other for 100% and I find that after so many years quite nicely. I am sincerely grateful for.
Only one thing, I find unfortunate: my husband doesn’t like to dance, not now and not earlier. I, on the other hand, I do like to dance and can intensely enjoy dance performances: both ballet, classical dances, as breakdance can delight me.
The most passionate dance, where the partners melt together, is the tango. Now, so close to Valentine’s day, I wanted to find something that goes along with this theme and yes that is the word tango. In the Zentangleworld it means: 2 tangles danse together and become one.
Especially for this occasion, I have made a few red tiles!
On the first example, you see how Diva Dance comes out of Marasu. (I have also added a few tangles “Pokeleaf“) and in the second example I integrated Heartbox in a variation of Cadent. I used black pens and a white gelly pen.
There are special heart shaped tangles that you can use in your drawings. Check the trusted site to: Heartbox, Luv-A, LaBel, Heart, Heartrope, S, Heartfully, Heartline Heart strings, Heartvine, Hearty … …. I find some tangles really difficult but certainly, you will find one to use in your drawings. Personally, I like LaBel and draw this tangle regularly, usually as string. Also in the following example I used LaBel, but then as a kind of connection between 2 prints of bijoux–tile
When I was about 14, we were exceptional aloud to go to the movies with the whole class. It was Shakespreare’s Romeo and Juliet, directed by Franco Zeffirelli. Never I have seen a more beautiful version. I found both lead actors supercool. Julia Olivia Hussey was so beautiful in those wonderful renaissance robes and her amazing black hair! From then on, I let my hair grow and also had to have absolutely a median line. And Romeo (Leonard Whiting), with those speaking look in his eyes … I think a lot of my classmates were in love with him. … Now, they are, just like us, quite ordinary middle-aged people but then, they were my great idols. I loved the movie: the music, the costumes, the locations, the actors … I was very impressed by so much beauty and could therefore not fail to show a movie clip with the title song: a time for us, sung by the fantastic singer Loreena McKennit.
Around Valentine’s day a lot of chocolate is given to each other. I’m also fond of it, actually I love artisan chocolate with milk, preferably with nuts, cherries or Marzipan, ( also a tango) Unfortunately my choice has too much sugar inside, and it is definitely not friendly for my body. Also the creatures below, where you can bite off the whole head, I find irresistible. And then those feet, which are no longer hollow but full. I always eat them as final piece , and yes I can enjoy it.
But there is also a better choice: the Lovechock
This bar, in the form of a tree trunk is divided into 4 cubes. It contains 100% honest organic ingredients. Raw cocoa is good for heart and blood vessels and contains triptofaan, a speck of dust that reduces stress and creates a cheerful feeling. Loveschock is sweetened with the dried nectar of coconut flowers. This natural sugar is rich in minerals and comes slowly into the bloodstream. So, no spikes in your blood sugar. It is clearly the best choice for chocolate lovers. Dark chocolate was not really my thing but I like also this version. The bars are available in 7 flavors and you can buy them in organic supermarkets. My Favorites are almond/figs and pineapple/inca. A nice detail is: If you open the packaging, then comes a loveletter. You can knock out, fill out, and then possibly back grooving to give to someone you love!!!
For all my friends:
A memory lasts forever
and never doesn’t it die
True friends stay together
and never say goodbye
